By the stream I dream in calm delight, and watch as in a glass, How the clouds like crowds of snowy-hued and white-robed maidens pass, And the water into ripples breaks and sparkles as it spreads, Like a host of armored knights with silver helmets on their heads. And I deem the stream an emblem fit of human life may go, For I find a mind may sparkle much and yet but shallows show, And a soul may glow with myriad lights and wondrous mysteries, When it only lies a dormant thing and mirrors what it sees (Paul Laurence Dunbar) . . . . . . #water #glitter #auckland #aucklandcity #stream #lookdown #seethingsdifferently #nature #naturephotography #explore #exploremycity #bythestream #beautyofnature #creek #paullaurencedunbar #differentperspectives #newzealand #nz #picoftheday #aucklandphotographer #canon #canonphotography #canoni80d #perfectmomentsnz

I'm gonna miss fair weather trips to the woods. Can't wait for spring again already. #familytimes #inthewoods #picnic #bythestream #adventureoutside #adventure_outside #lowerwoods #feedingthebaby

👁 . Living beside water - I can’t believe I didn’t post a photo of the stream yet 🌊 . This peaceful stream runs parallel to the old barn and is shaded by these beautiful, green trees 🌳 . My suggestion is to build a cute wooden deck off the bank, where you can sit in tranquil with your feet in the water 💦 . It could even be the perfect spot for some sunrise yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏽‍♂️ . Also, a great area for bug hunting, we already spotted crustaceans in the water and other mini beasts nearby; 🦐🕷🦗🐸🐛 . #peacefulstream #bythestream #tranquility #minibeasts #livebythewater #atonewithnature #surroundedbytrees #treesandwater
